Turning a trash mountain into a Charlotte (“green land”)
Wugu Trash Mountain had been a dark park in Wugu area for many years. With the interdepartmental collaboration and efforts, New Taipei City Government successfully assisted local industries in transformation; dismantled illegal buildings; and adopted the spirit of sustainability and urban aesthetics, successfully transformed the messy trash mountain into a popular environmental park. Wugu Charlotte is also designed with sidewalks and ecological pools and this is the reason that it received numerous awards, including “National Sustainable Development Award”, “Outstanding Group Award for Fighting Against Environmental Crimes” and the “Green City Award” of “Taiwan Healthy and Age-Friendly City Award”.
The lively macaron-colored landscaping
Conceptualized in “Peek-a-boo”, Wugu Charlotte has built an installation art themed on concrete pipes that allow adults and children to play in culvert pipes and discover art painting therein. Visitors can also climb along the colored steps to reach the peak of the park, allowing them to overlook Guanyin Mountain and Taipei metropolitan area and to look down the lively green grass below their feet.

- Hiking Trail
How to Get ThereChoose a transportation method based on your departure location.
Keelung Mountain Hiking Trail
The Keelung Mountain Hiking Trail is the best trail for visitors who intend to climb Keelung Mountain from the Shuinandong, Jinguashi and Jiufen areas, as it leads right to the summit. Climbing up from the trail entrance, you pass three pagodas. There will be a stone marker at 560 meters, with "Boundary between Yan, Yun-nian and Su, Wei-ren's properties" written on it, right before the summit. Press on and you will reach the summit at 588 meters above sea level, with a recreational pavilion and platform. The vertical distance climbed from the entrance to summit is 267 meters in high. Fit hikers may reach the summit, while the general public will take about an hour, with appropriate breaks recommended.As Keelung Mountain faces direct assault of ocean winds, the strong winds and hugely variable weather makes it difficult for trees to grow. Silvergrass and other herbaceous plants have become dominant in this region.
Caoling Historic Trail
The Old Caoling Tunnel cuts across Sandiau Cape, starting at Yuanwang keng, just inland from Fulung, and ending at Dali on the coast. It is the only remaining section (rebuilt by the Tourism Bureau) of the old Qing dynasty trail that was constructed 130 years ago to provide the only land link down the Northeast Coast from Danshui to Yilan.
